Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

From my album, Casey Joe Abair & Hunter Robertson: "If You Want to Go to Sleep, Go to Bed" (Yodel-Ay-Hee 074). The Devil's Dream as Hobart Smith called it, appropriately enough. It's a doozy. ‘John Brown's Dream’, ‘Little Rabbit’, ‘Herve Brown's Dream’ and ‘Pretty Little Miss’ are other names it goes by. Fiddle: AEAE, Banjo: aEAC#E (we're both tuned low, all the tunings I give here are relative).

Thanks Eddie. Sometimes it seems we have to play that fast or we hit stall speed. Steal away, I've stolen my fair share! Hunter

Great job!!  I was in Burlington, VT, last August, and wish I would have known then that you are there.  Would have looked your up.  The banjo and fiddle together are my great love.  Wish I could play both at the same time.
